Season 24 Tier List: Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings
This page goes over the current state of each class in respect to their solo clearing capabilities and provides a full ranking of each build currently available on the site.
Top Solo Greater Rift Pushing Builds for each Class
With patch 2.6.7, several items that modify Rend were buffed, bringing forth this build as the top Barbarian build and one of the top S-Tier builds overall. In the past couple of seasons and on non-seasonal, this build has dominated the leader boards for Barbarian while also being relatively easy to play, making it an excellent build for players looking to pick up Barbarian for the first time. With the addition of Ethereals in Season 24, this build gets another enormous power spike, bringing it in line with other top builds for pushing potential.
Even after some nerfs, the Heaven's Fury Crusader is still exceptional for Season 24. While this is not the fastest build, it is incredibly durable, an excellent elite hunter/RGK, and is once again looking to be the top Crusader build.
In Patch 2.6.9, Demon Hunters gained the new Gears of Dreadlands set (GoD), which is based around using generators. The set, combined with some substantial buffs to supporting items has led to the Hungering Arrow generator build using the new set, which is far and away the strongest Demon Hunter build in the game. This build offers the highest baseline movement speed and a play-style similar to the Whirlwind or Rend Barbarian builds, which makes it great for both speed and pushing. Ethereals make this build absolutely fantastic in Season 24, so definitely check this build out if you enjoy Demon Hunter.
With the new patch and season, Monks are the class that received the most substantial changes. The combination of some item buffs and Ethereals have brought LoD Wave of Light Monk back into the S-tier from long ago, while also retaining its speed as one of the fastest clearing builds in the game. Additionally, we have a new build for Monks thanks to the changes to the Innas set, which gives Monks a minion-based build of sorts that has some insane pushing potential as well. Monk has far and away the most varied build choices this season, so if you are looking for multiple builds to try, Monk is the answer.
Thanks to some severe nerfs to the previously dominant Bone Spear Necromancer, the LoD Necro builds will now reign supreme. There are a few different ones to try, but it is looking like the LoD Poison Scythe necromancer will be the top pushing choice, especially with the addition of Ethereals. This is a slow build, but is still one of the most durable builds in the game.
Witch Doctors received some much-needed changes in Season 20 with the addition of the Mundunugu's Regalia set. This set uses Spirit Barrage to deal massive AoE damage, and has proven to be the most powerful Witch Doctor build to date by far, potentially being used in the group meta for non-seasonal as a trash clearing build. This build did receive some substantial nerfs in Season 21 by reclassifying the phantasms to not be pets anymore, but this build was already so far ahead of every other Witch Doctor build that it should have no trouble retaining its spot as the top pushing build for Witch Doctors. With the addition of Ethereals however, the Poison Dart Witch Doctor builds will come close in power, so it is not a guarantee that the Spirit Barrage Witch Doctor remains on top.
In Season 23, the Firebird's Finery set was redesigned (see Patch 2.7). This new design has brought this set back from extinction, straight into the S-tier along with the best builds in the game. Both as a trash clearer and RGK, Firebird's is going to once again be a powerhouse in Season 24 for Wizards everywhere, and is likely to once again be the single most popular build in the new season.
Full Build Tier List
The difference between the tiers below is roughly equal to 5 GR levels. Also remember that builds evolve and adapt, and the tier list below will almost certainly end up over or undervaluing some builds as they play out over the season. This list is by now means set in stone, and has plenty of room for change as we learn more about the new builds.
